Johan Hammar: Everton defender joins Stockport on loan

Everton defender Johan Hammar has joined Blue Square Bet Premier side Stockport on a one-month loan deal.

Swedish Under-19 international Hammar joined the Toffees in July 2012 from Malmo FF, and has made eight appearances for the club's Under-21 side this campaign.

But he has been allowed to leave for Edgeley Park in order to find first-team football.

The 18-year-old goes straight into the squad to face Lincoln on Tuesday night.
